In all other respects, the F5-enclosure 422 is identical to other TerraMaster NASes, including the F4-421 that we previously reviewed. When we glance at the device's front, we can see a silver power button on the left side, with blue status LEDs above it, indicating that it is powered on.


NAS's back panel features two USB 3.0 ports, as well as two RJ-45 1GbE LAN ports and one RJ-45 10GbE LAN port, an HDMI port (post status only), and the power connector. The front panel lacks any kind of USB ports.
